Funny / Catherine Called Birdy

  • Quite a few, but accidentally burning down the privy while trying to drive away an unwanted suitor is pretty close to the top of the list.
  • When the floor catches fire, Catherine's father leaps into action by... pissing out the fire.
  • Several of the things that happen to a few of Catherine's other suitors: when one approaches the manor, she pretends to be a villager, and implies that "the Lady Catherine" is a violent lunatic (he turns around right away). There's also her father hurling a chamber pot at one who had brought up the matter of a dowry — it lands on the poor guy's head).
  • In one of Catherine's entries, she mentions she would rather be a pig boy then her current lot. Acouple entries later, she loses a ring in one of pig pens. She finishes the latter entry with "Definitely Do Not Want to be the Pig Boy".
